need help understanding ingredients in product?

i have just started the CG method and now i'm reading the ingredients in my products. the Garnier Fructis Curl Sculpting Cream Gel and its has Dimethicone and PEG/PPG-4/12 Dimethicone both of those are silicones or not i looked at the board about them, Dimethicone is water-insoluble and
PEG/PPG-4/12 Dimethicone is water soluble. so would that mean i can't use this product if i'm doing the CG method could any one help me?
If you see a 'cone that isn't PEG modified, it means that it won't be removed with water/conditioner only washing. So, you can't use it if you don't use shampoo of some kind.

There are some people who do CG who don't use cones of any kind. I consider myself modified CG because I use natural soap bars to cleanse and an occasional lowpoo (every few months if I use an ingredient that my hair doesn't like or doesn't seem to be removed by the natural soap bars.) My hair doesn't care for chemicals, especially polyquats. Even though I'm modified CG, I wouldn't use a product with water soluble cones. It's all personal decision making and what ingredients your hair likes.

thank you so much that would really help
This page is a good reference on cones and what will remove them. It doesn't list all of them, but it's a decent start: What's the Scoop on Silicones?
